a new fiscal and political reality. >> that was snar patty murray who is more than willing to go off the cliff on january 1st if republicans continue to block an increase in the top income tax rates. she said that back in july and i'm sure many republicans who don't know her, didn't take her seriously then. but as the head of the democratic snoerl campaign committee this year, she just razed the number of rim senators to 20. when patty purry first won her seat in the senate in 1992, there were three woman senators. patty murray is one of the three power senators in the senate, if she's ready to go off the cliff, then she won't be going alone. >> do you think of yourself more as a thelma or a louise? >> well i've got the red hair. it is a noble thing to go off a cliff some time, but maybe it's not the perfect imagery. it's one of those things, i feel like the thing we need to get across to people as lovely as it is to say going off the cliff or whatever, this is a principled stand to make. this is not going off the cliff, you know, wiely e. coyote, it's trying to get the republican pa

of income inequality. >> governor, we're going to have senator patty murray on the show in just a few minutes. in terms of getting this done, what do you think the president needs at this point? does he have all the arrows that he needs to get the tax cuts extended for the middle class and to expire for the upper income? >> he does if he's willing to use them. the part of this, the danger in this appeal, is that sometimes the president's going to have to go back to the same people that he's gining up here and saying you're going to take it a hit. the only way we will get this done. look, i think republicans are softening on increasing revenue, maybe voting for rates but only do it with significant spending cuts, particularly entitlements. it's going to be a quid pro quo. patty murray has to understand that, chuck schumer, all of our progressives and our party has to understand that. he has to make it work. only the president can do that. he has to use some of his arrows on his base. we don't have to get every democratic vote but we have to get more democrats to vote for this than repu

other comment. this from patty murray. this is that taxing the wealthy is essentially more important than taxing the budget. now coming of the senate doesn't have any track record ofassing budgets. am ihe only person who is shocked by this? >> no. we can consult recent history to understand we haven't had a budget and more than three years , and that taxg the wealthy is one one of the things the democrats think what'll solve the problem. u're talking about $80 billion a year. $800 billion over 10 years. when you are trying to fill a hole that is $1.4 trillion, more or less of a the deficit. the math just doesn't work. you can also go back and make a simple point that this is going to cost jobs. if we raise taxes on the wealthy, you're talking about the congressional budget office. just the tech sites on the wealthy are going to cost up to 200,000 jobs. ernst & young said that it will cost 700,000 jobs. is this a time that we actually want to be costing jobs and the economy struggling to regain footing? gerri: sompeople say we are early in a recession. we've been talking about it a lo

. poor patty murray. the senator from washington state. look at this. democrats beseech murray to take the job. nobody wants to be set up for failure. nobody wants to take on a job at which they are almost guaranteed to fail. and in 2010, the job of trying to secure democratic control of the senate in this year's election, seemed like a completely impossible prospect. look at this. democrats face an extremely tough map in 2012. the democrats must defend 23 seats while just ten republicans are up for re-election. no way, right? odds totally stacked against the democrats. no way democrats can hold the senate under those circumstances. that is how it looked when poor patty murray had to be beseeched into taking that job. it's not how it turned out. >> when harry asked me to take this on, there was not one, and i mean, no one who gave us a chance of keeping the majority. we played offense every day and we never let up and now joe donnelly and tammy baldwin and tim kaine, elizabeth warren, chris murphy, maizie orowno, they're all coming to join us in the senate. and along, of course, sherro

murray and others are when they hinted that? >> well, when you talk about senator patty murray, she suggests that. if we get a better deal by going off a cliff, at least for the first two months, that is something we should look at doing if we don't get our preferred strategy and tax rates. beginning to see that with democrats as well. the president has not explicitly said that. is the president's willing to actually do that. we have a lot of negotiating at of us. we have this section at the white house where the four top congressional leaders will meet. it don't really expect anything to come out of that. neil: the speaker, mcconnell, harry reid, nancy pelosi. >> one congressional aide told me, it sounds like this early in the process, believe it not, talking about early in the process even though the fiscal cliff to six weeks away, probably get a lot of nodding to my throat clearing, declarations about what we have heard of the last week which is a reiteration of the same position. by the way, congress is not in next week. neil: by the way, is this a lunch? >> this is a bronze, i

retiring. patty murray is up for that seat. we say she is the favorite, and i agree. i do think there is a possibility she does not take it. last time i talk to her people but they told me that she had not made a decision yet. you have to realize, when she took the dscc job back in 2010 when harry reid twisted her arm, almost breaking it, to take the job, she basically got him to get her the veterans affairs panel. and this has been a pet issue of hers for her entire career. she is so committed to veterans issues that i am a little skeptical about whether or not she would want to give that up and do a thankless job like budget committee chairman -- jeff sessions will tell you until he is blue in the face -- democrats have not done a budget in about three years. unless there is a real commitment on the part of harry reid to do a budget in the next year, if he really wants to be serious about that, i don't know what decision she ends up making. >> she did not have too much fun chairing the super committee. >> this is the other thing. she often takes on these think was jobs. when s

in the senate. with senate democrats adding two seats -- harry reid, dick durbin, chuck schumer, patty murray will be carried on people's shoulders to reelection as leaders. i don't really see any changes there. one thing we were hearing yesterday on the republican side, because they lost two seats, especially in states like montana and north dakota -- i did not think anybody is blaming john cornyn, the chairman, where they lost in missouri -- where candidates made flubs and that turned the race against them. but in red states where republicans should do well like montana and north dakota, they did not win those races. we were hearing yesterday that people were starting to talk about whether or not they want to make a change there. now, and ultimately think you are not going to find anybody who either has the juice of the power base or frankly the bravery to actually challenge cornyn, but it is interesting people are talking about it. >> just to reiterate it, cornyn does not want to do the republican campaign -- >> i am working on lack of sleep, too. he is running for whip. jon kyl is retirin
